QUOTES

 “The pharmaceutical industry is the most lucrative, the most cynical and the least ethical of all the industries," Dr. Philippe Even tells The Guardian. "It is like an octopus with tentacles that has infiltrated all the decision-making bodies:  world health organizations, government agencies, parliaments, high administrations in health and hospitals and the medical profession." Author of "The Guide to the 4,000 Useful, Useless or Dangerous Medicines" http://www.fiercepharma.com/story/official-french-report-trashes-pharma-calls-many-drugs-useless/2012-09-14

 

 

We certainly are in a health care crisis, ... If we had set out to design the worst system that we could imagine, we couldn't have imagined one as bad as we have.”

 Marcia Angell quote

There is an alarming laxity in the production of research, education of public and doctors, and standards of FDA approval for drugs, as well as the monitoring of safety and effectiveness of drugs.  For 2 chapters of the best book on how big PHARMA has manipulated the above and much more by Doctor Marcia Angell (Harvard Professor and former editor of New England Journal of Medicine).
